Curious what everyone thinks/knows on this subject. The land I hunt, as many of you know, is my father-in-law's, who happens to be a cattle farmer. He swears by it, that deer do not get spooked or "bothered" by cows. Like most cattle farmers, you have to rotate your cows every so often to allow the grass to grow back and for the cows to have fresh grass to eat. In the 5+ years I've hunted this land, I have noticed that deer don't come into areas where cows are located. I don't think they are scared by them, but they avoid them for some reason.
What are your thoughts? What about other animals that many be on your property?
